Modernity Meets History: Historic House Museums of Today for Tomorrow

The 20th anniversary meeting of the International DEMHIST Committee, to be held in Chicago, October 14-18, 2018 will explore concepts of modernism and modernity as a paradigm for how we explore the collections, narratives, buildings, and public engagement strategies of historic house museums. This theme follows from the 2017 DEMHIST conference in London which met around the theme of “relevance.” 

The conference will include a public lectures, and general sessions, a poster session, a key-note address, workshops, tours, receptions and excursions. 

 Attendees may arrive several days early and attend the Chicago Architecture Foundation’s Open House Chicago, Saturday and Sunday, October 13- 14, 2018.

Call for proposals, including papers, sessions, posters, as well as hotel, lodging, and transportation information, will be made available on the  Chicago DEMHIST 2018 conference website at the end of January.
